In the spirit of the “Weekly Photo Challenge”, I aim to take a photo when I see the new topic and accompanying suggestions. Because I live in the Southern hemisphere sometimes this isn’t possible eg Spring, Snow or Squirrel wouldn’t work for me but where I can, rather than lift my best archived photo I try to look at the topic through fresh eyes. Because the natural environment particularly interests me I look there first. Sometimes I’m disappointed with what I have to show but I figure that’s just part of accepting a challenge and hope I can do better next time.
Wonderful, wonderful silence.
The challenge this week is to show something weathered, I think this echidna sculpture is showing signs of having lived through a few hot summers and wet winters.
It seems to me there is always new growth on a Jasmine climber!

Last night we decided to check out a street where residents have illuminated their homes in the hope of raising money for a children’s charity. There were certainly plenty of potential donors.
So many little Skinks about just now I caught this one just deciding whether or not to ascend the tree.
I love these cheeky pigs as well as the cheek of the sculptor and officials who decided it was preferable to have pigs fossicking about in the capital city’s main pedestrian thoroughfare rather than a statue of some serious dignitary.
